    Phillips was also cited for not wearing a seat belt.

    ‘”Let me give them a ‘reason’ to stop me”. said he said.
    LEO explained this to me-He’s already breaking the law, why would he think to buckle his seatbelt. Made sense to me. So if you see me with my seatbelt on, stopping at all stop signs, I already live in the wrong in the wrong neighborhood you will know why.
